Title: Viet Nam Promoting Energy Conservation in Small and Medium Enterprises
The PECSME project comprises an integrated set of activities designed to address in a holistic fashion the barriers to widespread utilization of energy efficient management practices, operations and technologies in Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) sectors in Viet Nam. The five key SME sectors being addressed in the project are brick, ceramics, textiles, paper and food processing. The project has taken the results of ten carefully targeted demonstration projects in the five SME sectors and then applied them to a list of 459 replication projects during from 2006 to June 2010. The project is envisioned to achieve its objectives by supporting an integrated set of six component programs comprising: policy and institutional support development; communications and awareness; technical capacity development; energy efficiency services provision support; financing support; and demonstrations. By the end of 2010, the project aims to cover 500 small and medium enterprises and to contribute to the cumulative emission reductions of 700 kilotons CO2 and the cumulative energy savings of 160 ktoe.
